Caroline Rose Shares “Tell Me What You Want” Music Video
Caroline Rose is set to release her upcoming album, The Art of Forgetting, on March 24th, 2023, under New West Records. To commemorate the upcoming release, Rose has dropped a new single, “Tell Me What You Want,” with an accompanying video that explores the complexities of a failing relationship.
The single delves into the conflicting emotions felt during the last stages of a relationship. Despite the album’s overall somber themes, “Tell Me What You Want” offers a glimpse of Rose’s impish humor with lyrics like “Boy, you’re gonna hate this song…Tell me what you want.” According to Rose, the song captures the confusion and desperation felt during the end of a relationship, where one must choose between staying and enduring the pain or leaving and experiencing the guilt and regret of walking away from someone they love.

Rose and director Sam Bennett (Finneas, Wales) have also collaborated on a short film inspired by the album, entitled “The Art of Forgetting.” The film follows three chapters that intertwine a story of Rose navigating a transformative heartbreak. The “Tell Me What You Want” video is one of the chapters that picks up where the “Miami” video left off. The film will premiere on Thursday, March 23rd, 2023, on YouTube, and will include a live Q+A with Rose. Access to the watch party is open to anyone who pre-orders “The Art of Forgetting” before March 22nd, 2023. Additionally, there will be two free, in-person screenings of the film on March 24th, 2023, at a release day party at Tower Records in Brooklyn. RSVP is required, and space is limited.
In a statement, Rose explained that the film’s premise was to recreate real-life events, and that the word “saudade,” which describes a feeling of nostalgia, melancholy, desire, and longing, encapsulated the film’s essence. The short film is a loose recreation of Rose’s experiences during a transformative heartbreak.
“The Art of Forgetting” is set to be one of Rose’s most emotionally powerful and authentic albums to date. The album explores themes of loss, grief, regret, shame, and the inevitability of pain. Despite the album’s heavy themes, the combination of Rose’s powerful lyrics and sumptuous arrangements make for an enchanting listening experience.
